so i have been excitedly planning this hunt trip for 2012 2nd season elk rifle. my "buddies" are going to draw 501 like they always plan for. and if they get it, they will stick with it. the issue i see is it is a draw only GMU, and myself and my father do not have any points. first hunt for us both. this is kinda a bad thing, as we both could use a little guidance, especially in the field dressing department.
is there any way to get a chance to draw? if not, what are our options? how/where are we able to hunt while having no points? thanx for any info provided.
